I'm investigating the package quantmod. However when doing the examples
on the site i encounter some problems. Here is my output:
Loading required package: quantmod
Loading required package: xts
Loading required package: zoo
Attaching package: 'zoo'
The following object(s) are masked from package:base :
Loading required package: Defaults
quantmod: Quantitative Financial Modelling Framework
Version 0.3-7, Revision 461
Error in download.file(paste(FRED.URL, "/", Symbols[[i]], "/",
cannot open URL
In addition: Warning message:
In download.file(paste(FRED.URL, "/", Symbols[[i]], "/",
cannot open: HTTP status was '404 Not Found'
Error in do.call(paste("getSymbols.", symbol.source, sep = ""),
list(Symbols = current.symbols, :
could not find function "getSymbols.Oanda"
As it seems, retrieving data via quantmod is not successful. Anybody
knows how i could solve this?
